LJ Hooker Foundation
On 20 September 2016 LJ Hooker launched its new charity, the LJ Hooker Foundation, to manage the significant funds raised by its network of 600 offices across Australia.
Since 1928 the LJ Hooker family have been raising millions of dollars for worthwhile causes and, with the LJ Hooker Foundation, we are able to take our philanthropic efforts to another level under the charitable institution.
On launch two major beneficiaries were chosen, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Australia.
In 2017, the LJ Hooker Foundation funded the development and launch of CF Consumer Connect, a new platform for the cystic fibrosis community members to share their feedback on care and treatment in CF Centres. Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA) is the peak consumer body for people living with cystic fibrosis. CFA is committed to improving clinical practice and patient outcomes through its quality improvement programs and research with the aim of extending life expectancy from 37 to 50 years by 2025.
Over 50 charities were reviewed by LJ Hooker offices and the LJ Hooker Corporate team before LJ Hooker Foundation’s second charity partner was chosen, Humpty Dumpty Foundation.
Humpty Dumpty Foundation facilitates the donation of life-saving medical equipment in paediatric wards, neonatal units and emergency departments in 275 hospitals around Australia. This number is expected to rise to more than 300 hospitals with the LJ Hooker partnership.
Paul Francis, Founder and Executive Chairman of Humpty Dumpty Foundation, said their partnership with LJ Hooker Foundation will be a wonderful opportunity for regional and remote hospitals to benefit from the local generosity and fundraising efforts of LJ Hooker offices.
The LJ Hooker Foundation is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profit Commission. With ongoing commitment to two very worthwhile national charities, Humpty Dumpty Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Australia . We also give to other registered charities on an annual basis.
We are thrilled to announce our third official charity partner for 2019/2020, as Share the Dignity. Share the Dignity is an Australian Charity bringing dignity to women and girls experiencing homelessness, domestic violence and period poverty through the distribution of sanitary items. During 2019/2020 the LJ Hooker Foundation will be directing funds to help grow their #Pinkbox Dignity Vending Machine program along with running collection events within the LJ Hooker network.
